Forklift's Revenge was a maroon wedge-shaped robot that competed in Series 3 of Robot Wars. It was a sequel to Reserve Robot Forklift.
The robot was made from a welded steel tube body frame, and had MDF and steel panels. Forklift's Revenge featured wedge shaped forks made from industrial shelving for attacking low ground clearances, but its main weapons were two chains that ran up the wedge. These chains were toothed, so that they could hook other robots and drag them over its body. However, it was unable to use these to good effect against its only opponent Suicidal Tendencies, and was dumped down the pit - the second robot in its heat to suffer that fate.
Team member Bob Benton used to collect tumble dryer doors in his garage.
Robot History Edit
Suicidal Tendencies was Forklift's Revenge's opponent. The two robots immediately slammed into each other in the middle of the arena and Suicidal Tendencies drove right on top of Forklift's Revenge's wedge, but got away. It then drove behind Forklift's Revenge and slammed into it, breaking some of its teeth off. Forklift's Revenge then ripped part of the Arena Flipper chevron tape off with its forks. Suicidal Tendencies pushed Forklift's Revenge towards the flame pit and into Sir Killalot's Corner Patrol Zone. Killalot hooked its drill lance onto Forklift's Revenge's chains, allowing it to flourish in mid-air, holding it up and rolling it over in midair several times, at one point slamming it onto the ground, but picking it up again.
